I just wanted to share this teaser from a work in progress. It’s a paranormal romance…
Then the unthinkable happened. The knife slipped from her grasp and she could only stare in horror as the blood drained from her wrist. No, she thought. No! her mind screamed. Suddenly, she felt weak and with a delayed response, she reached for a towel.
Before she knew it, a weight pressed in behind her. Fear sliced into her. The scream didn’t make it out of her mouth. She watch in dull fascination as Alec brought her bloody wrist to his mouth. A second later, she started kicking and screaming. He managed to subdue her easily, trapping her arms.
“Cease the fight, love,” he said softly.
“You will not drain me dry. I am not dying.”
“Shh,” he whispered. “Trust me.”
His dark eyes were hypnotic on hers. He was facing her now. How did he move so fast? She watched as he ran his tongue over her wounds. The breath was all caught up in her chest, choking her. She wanted to scream, but for some reason, she’d lost her voice.
“Look,“ he commanded.
Her mouth dropped open as the cut sealed itself. When it was closed completely, he tugged her to the sink where he wet a cloth and wiped the bloodstains from her skin. He also wiped his own mouth off.
“You didn’t seem to enjoy that. You…you didn’t take advantage.”
He scowled. “You are right, Desiree. I get no pleasure from your pain.”
